About this book

Die ding in die riete (ePub) | Short Stories & Fiction Anthologies

Jean Lombard (samest.)


In this collection of stories a wondrous world of myths unfolds across many cultures and boundaries. In Die ding in die riete we meet, among others, the evil snake in the Creation Myth, the water snake of the Khoisan, with all his sexual and carnal connotations, and the Chinese portrayal of Kwan Yin, a snake of wisdom. Not to mention the mermaids and other marvellous creatures. Antjie Krog says, “I found the stories absolutely mesmerising. Each one is as good as the next and I sat spellbound reading them all. In my opinion something precious has been gathered here. Incredible that all the stories are so good.”
